Children's Literature - Shelly Shaffer
In Forest Animals, Deborah Hodge explores the northern Boreal forest and describes various animals that live there. Young children can learn about black bears—big, powerful animals with long claws and sharp teeth who have baby cubs the size of puppies. The author tells how these bears escape from danger, where they sleep, and what they eat. Small birds called chickadees also live in the forest and are suited to withstand the cold temperatures in the forest. Many other interesting breeds are included in this volume, so young readers can learn about uncommon animals such as lynxes, loons, wolverines, caribou, wood frogs, snowshoe hares, and wolves. The author includes information about how these animals eat, how they care for their young, and how the animals survive the cold temperatures. The realistic illustrations help the reader picture the animals and their environment. The book is clearly written with easy to understand vocabulary for young readers. The back of the book includes a search-and-find activity for readers to look back into the book to find certain pictures of animals. Reviewer: Shelly Shaffer
